Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, all Accreditation Clinics including: Entry Level, Small Sided, Small Sided Assistant Referee and the Mentor Accreditation Clinics will be delivered online in 2020. All currently approved Clinics, and future Clinics will be moved to this new delivery method.
Ontario Soccer is diligently working to ensure that the Entry Level education delivery is consistent across the province, and meets all of the Canada Soccer guidelines.
The online delivery will include online self-guided study material, pre-clinic work and Zoom Webinar sessions to replicate the in-class environment. Ontario Soccer aim to launch the first round of the online Clinics in early May. The practical requirements for Accreditation Clinics will be delivered regionally in the format of LTOD days once the Provincial and Municipal facilities closure is over.
Currently registered Entry Level Clinic participants should note that the pre-course work is not required to be completed at this time.
A Step-by-Step guide for students outlining instructions for online Accreditation will be distributed and communicated directly to students from Ontario Soccer Staff within the next two weeks. Only those students who have registered, paid and have been approved by the Clinic Host, will be contacted to participate in the online Accreditation delivery. Online Accreditation will be released by Ontario Soccer for the months of May and June.
